. we'll tell you why he slapped jon stewart right across the mug. first let's get to the news live at 5:30 a.m. here at 30 rock in new york city. >>> we start with some breaking news, where afghan officials say a suicide bomber has attacked a mosque in kandahar during a memorial service for president hamid karzai's murdered half brother this morning. at least four people were killed in the blast, including the head of the province's religious council. a second explosion was reported nearby the mosque, but no additional information has been released on that so far. we'll have more on this story throughout the morning as it develops. again, four people are killed at a memorial service for the half brother of hamid karzai, killed a couple of days ago. >>> back to domestic politics here. by the admission of the participants themselves, the budget negotiations between congressional leaders and the president have taken a step backward. today will be the fifth consecutive white house meeting to try to reach a deal on raising the debt ceiling. without a resolution in sight, house speaker john b
. richard wolffe, thank you very much for joining me tonight. >> you bet, lawrence. >>> coming up, jon stuart cannot help himself. he can't help but make gay jokes about michele bachmann's husband. so he needs a therapist to help him pray away the gay jokes. that therapist is jerry seinfeld. >>> and when eric cantor says he will never vote for a tax increase of any kind, he is forgetting one little thing about his own record on taxes. luckily for him, and the political media has also forgotten it too. but i'll be reminding him and the political media of the day eric cantor voted to raise income taxes. that's in my "rewrite" tonight. in financial transactions... on devices... in social interactions... and applications in the cloud. some companies are worried. some, not so much. thanks to a network that secures it all and knows what to keep in, and what to keep out. outsmart the threats. see how at cisco.com cisco. the 3.6-liter pentastar v6 engine in the jeep grand cherokee has a best in class driving range of more than 500 miles per tank. which means you don't have to worry about findi
: one of the big stories we will be following the next two hours, jon scott, standing by with a preview of "happening now". julie juliet: >> by the time we join you 12 minutes from now, 12 minutes will have ticked away, heading towards the debt limit and a tea party tempest as tea party backed republican freshmen get the run of the house. senator lindsey graham says this nation is becoming greece. he's our guest. and bret baier on winners and losers on this, and, baby it is hot outside! 17 states with extreme heat and the republican race for president could get hotter. governor rick perry may be getting closer to jumping into the race for the white house and is making those kind of noises, at least. we'll take a closer look at his prospects, coming up, happening now. jamie: thanks, jon. lots to cover? thanks, jamie. jamie: they grew up together and now, they plan to serve together, a set of quadruplets set to serve their country. what do their parents have to say about all of this. >> i don't know how we'll react. >> i'm so close to all four, so it is harder. it is harder for me to see
believe that -- and i think mr. cantor, my majority leader, i do believe that mitch mcconnell stan jon kyl all -- and jon kyl all spends the same view making sure there are no tax increases on the table. bill: good morning to you. do you like this mcconnell idea if your backs are against the wall notice end and you had to put something out there as a last-ditch option, would this be it? >> the first part i looked at, i haven't been able to read all the way through it, i don't like relinquishing our power to raise the debt for the president. we have a responsibility as members of congress to bring the accountability back to this country. i wouldn't want to relinquish it seeing what this president has done for job growth. just 18,000. canada has a smaller population than california grew more jobs than this president's administration. bill: if that's off the table, i think what mcconll was trying to do is force the white house to identify where the -- they wd cut to be specific about it. if that was something congress to chew on or more importantly the american people. >> i understand why mcc
sharpton? >> i don't think anybody does. he is the king of quid pro, quo. >> i'm jon scott. see you next week. >> john: it's not that people don't know. the battle is over all television. people know the president but do they know his opponent. >> you are spending more money than taking in you need to spend less of this. who is this guy? do you know who this is? yes, of course. >> john boehner. >> lots of people didn't know him. >> i don't know who that is. >> or anything about the debt problem zbloojtsd what is the debt limit. what are they fighting about? >> i don't know. >> okay, tonight we'll explained and we'll talk about the debt. it's into the hard. the debt and the stossel solution. that is our show tonight. >> john: look at that, they need more? if they don't get more money they won't be able to send social security checks and pay veterans' benefits our veterans deserve. really? isn't $2 trillion isn't enough? they can pay social security and medicare and the interest on the debt and still have hundreds of billions left over. two trillion is plenty. it's billions more than
: meanwhile, arizona snort jon kyl, delivering the republican address and accusing the democrats to use the debt crisis to raise taxes instead of viewing it as an opportunity to rein in spending. >> unfortunately, after weeks of negotiations it became clear that democrats in washington did not view this crisis as an opportunity to rein in spending. instead, they saw it as an opportunity to impose huge tax increases on american families and small businesses. president obama is simply too committed to the european style of big government that his policies have set in motion. to democrats in washington, the answer isn't to cut spending, but to raise taxes and keep on spending. democrats claim they would only target the privileged few, but behind the scenes, they argue for much broader tax increases. >> jamie: now, we're keeping an eye on both the house and senate and fox is the place to be. you will not miss any of the action as this all moves forward. the senate is expected to vote early sunday morning to cut off debate on its own debt ceiling plans. keep it right here, kelly. >> kelly: a
whip jon kyl drew the line in the sand on sunday. >> unless the president gets off his absolute obsession with raising taxes, republicans won't do anything to harm our economy. job-killing taxes harm our economy. there will not be a default. as to whether or not we can achieve savings in the process dpentding on the president. >> i did not hear the world probably. i heard the word not. republicans would rather see the markets crash, unemployment go through the roof and americans in bread lines before they raise one damn dime in taxes. when it comes to the debt crisis, republicans are only interested in playing rush roulette with the stupid catchphrases. >> let's let the american people decide if they want like cutting spends, capping the growth in government and requiring a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. let's have a national debate. >> to cut cap and balance plan in the house. >> cut the deficit, put a straitjacket on it and balance the budget, the cut, cap and balance. >> i want to make sure we cut spending here in washington. i want to make smur we have a cap
raising their current tantrums among john boehnor, eric canton, mitch mcconnell, jon kyl, collectively they passed 19 votes during the bush administration to raise the debt ceiling, just those four guys. raising the debt ceiling is not something that usually has a big fight over it. sometimes it does, sometimes part of congress tries to leverage this vote because it's something that absolutely has to pass. in the same way crafty politicians will sometimes attach unrelated things to the pentagon budget because the pentagon budget everybody agrees has to pass, in that same way, politicians in the past tried to attach things to the debt ceilings. they not only failed, they so misunderstood the dynamics of their own party, john boehnor is so bad at his job, a political pundit at 9:00 p.m. on nbc, using this as a metaphor of what just happened to them. the breeze helps, i think. republicans blew it. they totally, utterly, 100% blew it, and today they had to essentially surrender. >> republicans senate leader mitch mcconnell presented. >> after weeks and months of fighting about it, senate r
potential spending cuts, potentially tax changes, as well. when you have republican leaders like jon kyl the arizona senator on fox news sunday, look, this is not going to end up with any major tax changes, tax rates are not going up, saying that. it's making people on the left feel like this is pre-cooked and it's going to be a lot of spending cuts and no real tax changes. as you know, the beginning of this week, we started last monday, president obama's whole message this was going to be a balanced approach, taxes as well as spending cuts. >> neil: i do know this, since you arrived at fox, we have a constitutional crisis, financial crisis but thank you very much. [ laughter ] >> neil: great reporting throughout. ed henry. >> we've been takes about election among progressive caucus members. they are pretty much against the deal right now. we don't know the deal as it stands right now but there is some factions on the right, some tea party members also having concerns about a compromise they could be maybe overcompromise. we start with congresswoman republican from the state of washingto
bulbs. bill: "happening now" is in 11 minutes, rick folbaum is in for jon scott. rick: coming up on "happening now", the president as you've been saying getting set to speak to the country on the debt crisis in about ten minutes or so. we've got analysis with an all star lineup including bret baier out of washington and we want to hear from you. go to foxnews.com/happening now, click on the america's asking tab and weigh in. also is the exclusion to cyber spying and crime a second internet? we'll have more on that idea. >>> and the story of the bible's bad guys, the historical facts that are being uncovered in the israeli desert, coming up at the top of the hour on "happening now". back to you guys. bill: we'll take that mystery right on, rick, thanks, see you soon. >>> getting breaking news right now out of damascus, we reported about an hour ago that the u.s. embassy had been surrounded by a mob for about three days, that mob broke into the embassy by use of a battering ram, they did not breach the husbanding complexity self, however, because u.s. marines on guard fought them b
, after the media hype, it didn't work. it's passed away. >> we go from jon huntsman to tim pawlenty, a very nice guy, successful minnesota governor. yet the iowa poll that came out suggests tim pawlenty is in big trouble. >> he can't great through. he's on the sunday shows, making speeches at cfr, but he hovers around the 9% margin. if he doesn't make a move quickly, he better watch it. >> a cautionary note on pawlenty. he's been in iowa working for i don't know how long. he's got to be organized for the iowa straw polls in august. i think he's got to outperform whatever present number he has. michele bachmann has been in there three weeks. you have to organize the state and the community. he's probably been in all 99 counties. he might have a surprise showing in the iowa aim straw poll. unless he does, he's in, what was it, deep doo-doo. >> one way to look at it. >> do we arrive at a point where republican candidates -- >> that's the big question. to what degree is this base going to go with anybody but barack? i think romney will prove that out. the race is so unsettled at this po
alluded to looking at this field that is coming together over the next several days. jon kyl rarely does anything by mistake, the republican of arizona, number two in the senate. he rarely ever utters a word by mistake. but accident. so i think that was pretty telling. it would be easy enough for them to extent the debt limit for a couple of days to buy them some time. they have always said they would do it if they knew they were close to a deal coming together. >> jenna: so what does this look like? being that you have been able to walk the halls there in congress, and see what the work is like being done. so what is actually happening behind closed doors right now? are they writing up a bill? is something starting from scratch? are they amending something already out there? what needs to be done before it could even start its way through congress, whatever path that is? >> remember, they have been doing this in one shape or another for almost a year now, believe it or not. they have a menu, what aides will describe often as a menu of options. and there is nothing that is really going t
